Santa Rita 2005 Medalla Real Special Reserve Chardonnay (Casablanca Valley)

Over time Santa Rita's Medalla Chardonnay has gotten better, but it's still a wine with some holes to fill. For starters, 14.5% alcohol equates to heft and heat, while the mouthfeel comes across grabby and resiny. And while it's not overoaked, the tangerine and pineapple flavors seem more melony and soft than crisp. Michael Schachner
